Based on visual inspection of data, reinforcement procedures, namely, use of verbal praise and verbal praise plus token exchange, were at least mildly influential in improving performance of 5 youth with moderate mental retardation compared to their initial performance without reinforcers. These findings suggest specific reinforcement may improve the time for aerobic activity by adolescents with moderate mental retardation.
